    Shop got started pulling the motor out of mine and prepping to drop in the cobra long block I acquired for it. Doing the Eaton swap also while they have it.

    I'm kind of doing a thing with the taillights. Still have some tinkering to do to get it how I want it.

    Finally replaced all of the EATC bulbs with LEDs. Three have been burned out for a couple of years. It never really bothered me considering I set the temp to 72 back in ‘04...

    You could say I don’t really have much of a fidgeting disorder as my pedals, seats, tilt, and temp controls were all set in ‘04 and left the hell alone!

    Engine was cutting out at full throttle. I could ease into and it would be fine but felt underpowered. A/F was holding at 11 to 1 so I knew fuel wasn't the issue. Then I checked boost and it was only getting up to 7psi instead of the normal 14psi. Just as I suspected, one of the t-bolt clamps worked its way loose. Tightened it back up and all is good! I also installed a factory lower air dam under the radiator. The F.I.T. kit instructed to remove it, which the previous owner did. Was having issues with the temp getting higher than it should. Now with the air dam, temps stay nice and low while cruising!
    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    I'm looking to eliminate the double pump process I have to follow right now to get the pedal hard

    Marauder cleaned up yesterday (essential business!) - darn pollen! Oops...needed a new wiper blade too. Temps in the mid 80s - used a/c for the first time - worked properly as expected.. Pure motoring pleasure as I went shopping afterwards then back home.

    Reading this reminds me of all the issues of pipe blow offs I watched Dominick go thru and why I was having none of that! But this ain’t too bad considering it didn’t come apart on you and assuming this is first time you’ve had to adjust it. If not, weld it!

    Looks good Invective, but you're supposed to take the packaging off the wiper blades!

    I have been slowly removing old tint from her. Everyone suggests the garbage bag, soapy water, and hair dryer but I've just been using a blade and goo gone. In the meantime, I'm standing by to receive the EATC I sent out to fastblackmerc for refurbishment. Can't wait to reinstall that and have it light up at night. My journey with this car will be long and at times frustrating but by Christmas 2021 it will be a lean mean street fighting machine. And man does it sound good.
    I got a couple lean mean street fighting machines and a Kia

    Beauty of the Blow thru MAF is normal driving stayed the same. Clamp was in a tight spot and I prob gave up too early before it was fully tight. Then i had an epiphany and realized that an air ratchet is the way to tighten hose clamps!
